There are some great sources online for viewing Russian movies with subtitles, but it can be hard to find them if you don’t know what you’re looking for. I intend to list ones that I find here to help others!
Moscow Does not Believe in Tears (Москва слезам не верит) is a wonderful film from 1979, which won the Oscar for the best foreign language film in 1980.
Cranes Are Flying (1957), directed by Mikhail Kalatozov. This is a beautiful film in every respect.
The Master & Margarita is a famous book in Russia, and it is the “group read” Russian book for summer 2010!
The Idiot is one of my favorite books by Dostoevsky, and this Russian production from 2003 is superb. I’m going to upload one episode per week.
These classic Soviet comedies are still some of the most beloved films in Russia. Quote a line from them to a Russian and you’ll always get a smile.
I really love this series of Holmes and Watson films. There are more on YouTube, but because of the time limit on YouTube you have to watch them in 10 minutes segments, which is a drag. These from Google video are complete and have optional subtitles.
Here’s another interesting take: a movie in English with Russian subtitles. This is a great way to hear English expressions used, and see how they get translated into Russian. The subject is interesting as well. It’s a documentary about sound design in Animation, specifically for the movie “Wall-E”.
